Mason's Apron and me
Tomorrow I enter the line of succession at my Masonic Lodge and become an officer. I am a forth generation Mason, if not more. My Father and Grandfather and Great Grandfather were all Masons and three years ago I too took my vows and became a Mason. In honor of this wonderful thing called Masonry and because of my entrance into the formal leadership of my Lodge, I offer these videos of Masonic music of the Old Time variety. I hope you enjoy the show.
Take a look at the Masonic Lodge. Perhaps you too might find Masonry a meaningful activity and will consider joining us in our journey and work in making good men better.
Dan Brown's most recent novel, "The Lost Symbol" is good reading I am told and it portrays Masonry in a good light. Mr. Brown was also the author of "The DaVinci Code". This book has increased the interest in Masonry and our membership is surging now.
If you would like to be a Mason, ask one about it. He will be glad to help.
The first selection is a bit differant for here but still within the parameters of real old time music. Check it!
Ian Werner playing.
Some young fiddle students of unknown ID
I like how they play this!
Davy Arthur playing on banjo
This one is pretty poor visually but they play damn good.
As played by the Evergreen Band.
Alas, none of the above is local but the song is the game here tonight.
